$3.4 billion for home heating in federal funding bill


Washington, D.C. — Senator Kirsten Gillibrand announced the Low-Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP) is set to receive $3.4 billion on Tuesday.

More than one million New Yorkers rely on LIHEAP to heat their homes during the winter.

"No New York family should ever be left in the cold," Senator Gillibrand said.

Without the federal resources, households nationwide may have been subject to cuts in federal heating aid during the remaining winter months.
